Lord Majestros:
More often than not, he's been written as VERY close to someone like Thor physically with the margin between the two being negligible at best. In the first handbook (which WAS NOT the Master Edition for anyone reading this that thinks it was) the two were actually listed with the same strength level (95 tons). However, some have written the gap being greater. "Wonderman" #25 actually officially made Simon top tier class 100 level, but Busiek ignored that powerup except for the flying part. Point being, the majority of continuity puts Simon VERY close to Thor physically.

...with far less skill, experience and without the powers of mjolnir. Simon's power up turned him into Charlton's E-man imo. Unfortunately, the look that Busiek and Perez gave him made him seem unsolid.

Wondy's skin is no doubt tougher than Thor's and probably tougher than Hulk's on a surface level but overall I would say he's more likely to be koed if hit with an exotic, powerful force. In short...Wondy still has the glass jaw of a bad guy class 100 or not. His durability doesn't go deep enough.
